Storyline

At the Harry DeJour Playhouse in New York in the mid-2000s, John Waters emerges from a confessional onto a stage littered with trash. He tells stories. After a few about his childhood and early influences, he roughly follows the chronology of his career as a film director, relating anecdotes about the making of each film and letting those stories lead him to riffs on other topics. Gay references and wry observations about people's foibles and limits are constants. Waters' looks, too, are the butt of his jokes. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

This Filthy World originated as John Waters' one man show that has toured all around the world. It was then filmed live to create this production. Mr. Waters still tours with this show and speaks at various engagements in which he includes many of the anecdotes that he shares both on stage and in the filmed version. See more »

Out on DVD in UK ----Hilarious!!!!
26 December 2007 | by vinylforeverSee all my reviews

Well, this is not what others call "a movie", but for me definitely the very best cinema experience of the year (Berlin Filmfestival)! 450 gags within 84 minutes, if you know his movies-- and still 250, if you're a newbie...for me a definite one to-take-onto-the-island!!!!

This stand-up-oneman-show (John Waters about life and his movies) was recorded for netflix, an American online videotheque (who released it exclusively to its customers first) and was released as a regular buy-DVD in the UK in November. It is worth every cent /penny and contains two very entertaining Q&A sessions, that are nearly as long as the feature itself!
